    Sick teen's military dreams come true.

    EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Weakened by a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis, 14-year-old Riley Woina dreamed of being strong like the heroes he'd seen in war movies like "Black Hawk Down."

    So when he was offered the opportunity through the Make-A-Wish foundation to realize his dream, he jumped at the chance.

    This one made me smile. A salute to the U.S. Army Rangers and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For all they did for Riley.

    I read this story with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face. What a wonderful thing for these military guys to do for this boy.
    You put the light in me...
